Want to meet your doppelganger? Here’s how you can do it!: The idea of having a doppelganger has inspired some of the greatest writers of our time. Even today, few are unfazed when a friend claims to have seen somebody exactly like them. François Brunelle even has an entire series ‘I’m not a look-alike’ with unrelated people who seem to look like twins.
For 17-year old Swedish-born Sara Nordstrom, and Shannon Lonergan, 21 from Ireland, having a doppelganger is a reality. The two women are not related, and live over 1,600 miles apart. They found each other on TwinStrangers.net, a website with over half a million users that brings lookalikes together.
Shannon, a business student from County Kerry, said: “The scariest thing was how our noses, mouths, lips and eyes were so incredibly alike.”
“It frightened me a little bit, but in a good way. As I spent more time with Sara I noticed how our expressions and ways of moving were exactly alike.”
